Dj Stacey…..Real name Stacey Ellul born on 14th February 1999 in Gibraltar. At a very young age Stacey was immediately attracted to all kinds of electronic music and by the age of 4 in 2003 was already starting to make her own music using an old computer and an old program called E-Jay which cought the attention of her then school music teachers who recognise her as a young talented girl.
By 2008 only aged 9 is where she decided to start to mess about with turntables but nothing serious came out of that until she then found out she could mix using simple programs like virtual dj. From there she has gone to using technics 1210 turntables ,cdjs and traktor. Her home set up consists of Pioneer CDJ2000 x 3,Pioneer DJM 2000 mixer, Allen & heath Xone 2d, mac book pro with traktor,Korg Kaossilator Sound Pad, Technics 1210 × 2 and Pioneer HDJ 1000 headphones.She is also now messing about with a Pioneer DDJ -T1 new toy to play with.

Her journey as a Dj started with her playing soulful vocal house in a few small parties in some of the youth clubs in her hometown but has since been defining and experimenting the darker and more underground side of house and techno with her unique sounds, thundering and pumping Techno , Tech-House and rolling tribal beats.Her big break came in summer of 2010 then only aged 11 when she played for a crowd of 3000 at the biggest and most exclusive club in Southern Spain, Dreamers (Marbella Puerto Banus Spain) where she has since become a regular guest.

She has attracted the attention of many top Clubs and promoters alike. Already only aged 12, she has gained a lot of respect in the clubbing scene in her area and has started to make a name for herself internationally too. She has participated in quite a number of major events both Locally and abroad, has had 2 residencies in Spain and currently just finished a 3rd residency where she became a crowd favorite during winter 2011 and secured some important gigs for the summer of 2011 in some major clubs both locally and in Spain. She has also done support sets for quite a number of world class Djs that have been brought into the local scene by her promoters or other promoters who have taken her on for their events.
